From Digital to Print | Italy Book
This past May, The Mister & I gallivanted around Italy for 8 full and glorious days and it was one of those magical experiences you never want to forget - like a vivid dream of which you remember every detail. (Want to see my best photos from the trip? Right this way...) While I captured a treasure trove of images, it is another thing entirely to translate them from digital files on my computer to a beautiful book that I can hold and share and touch. That's where Artifact Uprising comes in.
In a letter to their followers recently, Katie Thurmes - Co-Founder of Artifact - shared this:
As soon as I read those words, I knew I needed to turn our experience into a legacy to share. So I distilled my 4,000+ collection of images into a 300+ curated gallery that told the richest, most refined story of our time in Italy and laid them out in a visually compelling way that would take me, and any other viewer, through a seamless journey. It took hours of perfecting, moving and selecting, but the finished product was well-worth the work and I now have the loveliest, truest account of our adventures.
Cloth bound in a dusty, rosy peach with a jacket of velvety matte, eyes are drawn to it and fingers itch to pick it up and turn its pages. Saturated photos adorn every page, tempered with the simplest and most striking white border. My book of Italy is now one of my most beloved possessions and to know that not only did I take its photos but I created a place for them, too, is utterly satisfying. I'm a maker and a storyteller and Artifact unites them both for me.
Artifact Uprising, thank you for your absolute excellence in preserving memories and for giving my experiences a home. I look forward to holding these pages with all of my generations to come...
